The first scent I could pick up when I opened the wrapping was of peanut butter – which I suppose is fine if you were expecting that, but not no if you wanted some half decent milk chocolate. Well, here’s where I confess. This chocolate was actually bought by my other half from Waitrose and I’ve stolen it out of the cupboard. I suppose I’m the chocolate equivalent of a train spotter and just couldn’t resist finding out what it was like.
That said, I found the texture incredibly oily – somewhat like a Galaxy bar. It didn’t make you go back and try some more. In fact this review was a very quick affair. The raisins were incredibly sweet and the nuts very bland. This is certainly a poor-man’s Cadbury Fruit and nut chocolate bar. At £1.58 for 200g its not exactly going to break the bank. But if you’re out in Waitrose and you’re looking for some nice milk chocolate to enjoy then I’d consider looking elsewhere than this bar.
It’s always nice to try different things, I now what this one tastes like, but it does mean that you often taste chocolate that you just don’t think comes up to standard. I know there’s always a time and a place for all types of chocolate, but I’d say that this one would be for a train or plain journey where you’ll just stock up on some calories and not really be too fussed what type of chocolate you’re having.
